CCMT 2021 | M.Tech Admission to NITs through GATE

Centralized Counselling For M.Tech./M.Arch/M.Plan. Admissions (CCMT-2021) is a common platform for candidates to apply for M.Tech./ M.Arch./ M.Plan./M.Des. programmes, based on their GATE score of years 2019, 2020 and 2021, in all NITs, IIEST Shibpur, and some IIITs & GFTIs.


Like COAP, this centralized system provides a common and convenient platform for online counselling wherein the candidates can fill in a single online application form from their homes and apply to all programmes in all the participating institutions to which they are eligible.


CCMT-2020 (Coordinated by MNIT Jaipur) enormously increases the overall convenience of candidates. Candidates are allowed to participate in both regular rounds and Special Rounds even if one has obtained a seat in the regular round.
